    Re: Getting Function or Variable not found error

    The problem lies in this part:
    Code:
    g_objboImaging.UpdateData(strSerialNo, _
    dtDocDate, DocumentID)
    that should help, but if you really wanted help, you'd show where you declared those variables / function to UpdataData

    This error means that you have not declared a variable, or didn't make a Function or sub with the expected name. From your code, the problem can be with any of the objects, namely :

    objRecordset,
    g_objboImaging
    UpdateData,
    strSerialNo,
    dtDocDate,
    DocumentID

    Make sure all these objects are delared, and that you indeed have a function named UpdateData

    Another problem may be that you are trying to use an object from certain class, without instantiating that class beforehand.

    Agin, from your code, I gather that g_objboImaging must be an object representing a certain class, and that class wasn't instantiated.

    To instantiate a class object variable, you must use the keyword New upon declaration.

    I hope my advice was helpful

    Re: Getting Function or Variable not found error

    Thanks for both of you for your reply. But am still getiing that error. Here is the code which am trying to. Please help me out. Am new to VB. At my work they asked me to do this so am lil scared...

    Private Sub cmdUpdate_Click()

    ' Local Variables
    Const strFunctionName = "cmdUpdate_Click"
    Dim strSerialNo As Variant
    Dim dtDocDate As Date
    Dim DocumentID As Long
    Dim objRecordset As New Recordset


    ' Initialization
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

    ' Function

    '
    UpdateData txtUpdatedSerialNo, txtUpdatedDocDate, txtDocID

    Set objRecordset = g_objboImaging.UpdateData(strSerialNo, _
    dtDocDate, DocumentID)

    ' Function Exit
    FunctionExit:
    Exit Sub

    ' Error Handler
    ErrorHandler:
    Select Case StandardError(m_strModuleName, strFunctionName)
    Case vbAbort: Resume FunctionExit
    Case vbRetry: Resume
    Case vbIgnore: Resume Next
    End Select
    Resume FunctionExit


    End Sub



    and for UpdateData function:::::::::::::::::


    Private Sub UpdateData(ByVal strSerialNo As String, ByVal dtDocDate As Date, _
    ByVal DocumentID As Long)

    10000 ' Local Variables
    10010 Dim strFunctionName As String
    10020 Dim objRecordset As Recordset

    20000 ' Initialization
    20010 On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    20020 strFunctionName = "UpdateData"

    30000 ' Function


    30010 m_objDocuments!strSerialNo = txtUpdatedSerialNo
    30020 m_objDocuments!dtDocDate = txtUpdatedDocDate
    30030 m_objDocuments!DocumentID = txtDocID


    60000 ' Function Exit
    FunctionExit:
    60010 Exit Sub

    70000 ' Error Handler
    ErrorHandler:
    70010 Select Case StandardError(m_strModuleName, strFunctionName)
    Case vbAbort: Resume FunctionExit
    Case vbRetry: Resume
    Case vbIgnore: Resume Next
    70020 End Select
    70030 Resume FunctionExit




    Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass
    strSerialNo = txtUpdatedSerialNo
    dtDocDate = txtUpdatedDocDate
    DocumentID = txtDocID

    End Sub


    and In business objects i did ::::::::::::::::


    Public Sub UpdateData( _
    ByVal strSerialNo As Variant, _
    ByVal dtDocDate As Date, _
    ByVal DocumentID As Long)
    ',
    'ByVal AccountNo As Variant
    ') 'As Recordset
    ' ByVal UpdateVersion As Variant


    'Local Variables
    10000 Const strFunctionName = "UpdateData"
    10010 Dim objdoImaging2 As doImaging2.clsdoImaging

    ' Initialization
    20000 On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

    ' Security

    ' Function
    Set objdoImaging2 = m_objContext.CreateInstance(g_strImagingDataObject)
    objdoImaging2.UpdateData strSerialNo, dtDocDate, DocumentID
    ', '_
    ' AccountNo
    ', '_
    'UpdateVersion

    ' Return
    ' m_objContext.SetComplete

    FunctionExit:
    Exit Sub
    ' Error Handler
    ErrorHandler:
    Select Case ServerStandardError(m_strModuleName, strFunctionName, m_strCaller, DocumentID)
    Case vbRetry
    Resume
    Case vbIgnore
    Resume Next
    Case Else
    Resume FunctionExit
    End Select
    End Sub


    and in DataObjects i did:::::::::::::::


    Public Sub UpdateData( _
    Optional ByVal VIN As Variant, _
    Optional ByVal DocumentDate As Date, _
    Optional ByVal DocumentID As Long _
    )

    ' Local Variables

    Re: Getting Function or Variable not found error

    And the code would be even more legible if you wouldn't use those antique line numbers.
    This is not MBasic, after all.

    Re: Getting Function or Variable not found error

    Line numbers can be a good thing.

    True they do make it harder to read but they also allow you to pinpoint the line which caused the error once it has been compiled and sent to the end user.

    I sometimes add line numbers into potentially troublesome code before sending it to the end user.

    Re: Getting Function or Variable not found error

    I haven't seen a line number used since college classes a for 'legibility', and before that was COBOL, which NEEDED them.

    They are useful for cross-reference listings (but I haven't seen one of those since QB 4.5.

    Re: Getting Function or Variable not found error

    There is a method in VB6 to display the line number where the error occurs but in order to use it you must have line numbers in your code before compile. I have used this on occasion and it proved very useful. Normally of course I do not use line numbers in code but they do have thier uses.

    I saw a utility somewhere that would add line numbers to your project prior to compile [of course such a thing would be simple to write yourself as well] In a large project this could save many hours of support time.
